Is The Fugue in D Minor Scary to You?

October 31, 2008 at 6:47 pm (Random Rambles) (, , , , , , )

I remember hearing this as a little kid and thinking it was the scariest music I had ever heard.  LOL.  I guess those were simplier times.

However it is Halloween and to celebrate I am sharing my scary music choice in a less than scary presentation.  If you have almost nine minutes to watch some dots set to music it is sort of fun the way they set this up.  Ok maybe it is not your idea of fun.  However this is one of the classics.  I always imagine someone playing this in an old movie theatre before the talkies came out and everyone glued to their seat to see the mummy attack the innocent victim.

Enjoy!  Happy Halloween.

Bryan Duncan Video

October 6, 2008 at 7:00 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , , , )

If you have ever seen him in concert you will never forget him.  Maybe Bryan Duncan is old school, but he sure got me through one of the worst years of my life with his music.  Now there is a YouTube video of the song I listened to so many times and I still never get tired of it.  I could wake up to this song every morning.  It is pure inspiration for each and every day.  Share this with someone going through a difficult time.

Let me know if you enjoy it.

Race Car Sponsor Is Promoting God’s Love

I found this site while looking at Digg.com and yes whoever posted it there did get some interesting comments.
It seems several people are definitely tired of all the “bad” things that happen to good people and ready for some changes.
Here is the You Tube video that explains it and shows the commercial.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

August 25, 2008 at 7:03 pm (Motivation-Inspiration) (, , , , , , )

We had a freak rain storm today.  When you live in the Mojave Desert in Calfornia rain in August is usually welcome.  The air is fresher and all the dust gets washed off of everything.  However the roads get covered with dirt because the desert can only absorb so much water and then it tends to run off.

It is beautiful here, and I was looking through some music to celebrate life, rainbows, and the new feelings that a summer rain can bring to a day.  I found this video from the Hawaiian, IZ (that is his abbreviated name).  If these lyrics do not hit you and bring on some emotion then you must be pretty set. His name is Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

I believe a tribute to  his life belongs on my Words of Encouragement blog.

I might post more than one video to him.  I hope you enjoy it and that you do find comfort in the presentations.

You should watch this one, too. It is more insight to his life.

I Love To Go Sailing

June 12, 2008 at 9:10 am (Motivation-Inspiration, Random Rambles) (, , , , , , )

I grew up at the beach. One of my friends had a small sailboat and we used to sail around the bay in Long Beach, CA in it. When I graduated from high school I used some of my graduation present money to get a 14 foot sail boat and then we sailed out around the oil islands and where ever the wind would take us outside of the bay.

Several nights as the sun set the wind would die and I would end up being towed back to where I kept my boat. That was embarrassing. You just can’t beat the feeling of wind power, until it stops. It is great that people show mercy on girls paddling a sailboat. Also never be too proud not to accept a helping hand.

I still sail when I can but I kayak, too. That is just as peaceful. I read Mark Twain’s book, Roughing It , when I was in high school. I have reread it twice since then. That is such a fun book. You can live life through his experiences. One part I always think about is his description of Lake Tahoe, and floating out in the lake in a canoe and just staring into the water. I have not done that at Lake Tahoe, but I have spent several hours at a nearby lake doing that very same thing, and following the fishes. It is so much fun to be as still as possible and watch the fishes doing fish stuff. Can fish be curious? Did you ever think of that?

Here is a video I ran across and it is such a great mood. It captures the feeling of Sailing as does the song by Christopher Cross. I hope you take 4 minutes out of your busy life to enjoy it.
